Yale dining halls allegedly remove ‘Israeli’ from name of ‘popular,’ longtime food item — then restore it after complaints

It seems dining halls at Yale University this week allegedly removed the word “Israeli” from the name “Israeli Couscous Salad with Spinach and Tomatoes” — a “popular food item” that’s “been on the menu for years,” according to Libs of TikTok.

Of course, Libs of TikTok wondered, “Why would they do that?”

An answer may never come to light, but according to Sahar Tartak — the X user Libs of TikTok credited with providing the before-and-after photos — Yale put “Israeli” back in the name of the couscous salad after Jewish students called out the powers that be.

Here’s a new photo posted Tuesday to X:

The above image appears to show a placard with a stapled-on piece of paper showing the previous menu item’s name — “Israeli Couscous Salad with Spinach and Tomatoes” — along with ingredients and nutritional information.

Tartak on Tuesday added that dining administrators emailed her the following: “Considering it is the main ingredient, it is appropriate to remain in the title, and we will correct this oversight.”

How are folks reacting?

As for the reaction on social media, it appears pretty divided.

Those who follow Libs of TikTok appeared to be pro-Israel in their reactions to the name-change allegation:

But commenters on Tartak’s post seemed decidedly anti-Israel in their reactions to the news that the word “Israeli” was restored:

Yale on Tuesday afternoon didn’t immediately reply to Blaze News’ request for comment on the name-change allegation.
